We are excited to announce that the J.E.S. Edwards Foundation is raising the stakes with a matching campaign by challenging our donors to contribute $40,000 during August and September! You are an important part of WHRI’s success. Your donations provide the funds needed to train the interns you love reading about in our Farm Notes, motivate the next generation of kids whose faces cheer up our Facebook posts, and partner with communities of resilient people who remind us about the most important parts of our mission. Donations need to be made by October 1st to maximize their impact. Click here to donate!
With heavy hearts we share the news that Jonathan King, a former live-in volunteer, passed away unexpectedly on August 21st, 2015. Our love, prayer and sympathy is extended to Dr. Jim King (who has faithfully served on our International Programs Committee and has taught our interns for many years), his wife Deborah and their whole family. A memorial and celebration service will be held Saturday, August 29th, 2:00 pm at First Baptist Church of Woodway. If you have a favorite photo that you would like to share with the family please e-mail it to firstname.lastname@example.org and he will forward it on to them. Also, please include his name with your donation if you are donating in his memory.
